This is the selection of images I have
available to print as of now, Summer, 2012. I have a large backlog
of negatives and transparencies I'm working through and will
be actively creating new images as time allows. Check back often,
the selection will be updated often.
Most of the images shown are from "old school" medium
and large format film cameras from the Forties and Fifties, the
bulk of them were taken from 1985 to 1995. A lot of them are
seeing the light of day for the first time since they were taken,
they were put into storage for the day when the time was right
for printing them. Well, the time, and the technology, are right,
The actual printing is done on an Epson 4900 that uses a combination
of pigmented inks and a special ceramic-coated paper I have chosen
to achieve prints that are equal in every way to the darkroom
prints of years past. The color prints have been excellent for
some time but the black and white took some time for the printer
manufacturers to perfect but the deep blacks and glowing highlights
I worked for years to achieve in a dank, smelly darkroom are
now are a reality. Superficially, this is an inkjet printer but
bears so little resemblance to the average home printer that
the prints even have a name, Giclée.
What I'm doing is the very definition of a one-person operation:
I took the photos, I decide which of the thousands of images
I have are the very best, scan the transparency or negative,
load the paper in the printer and ship the finished print to
you. I really can't think of any other way of doing this that
will absolutely maintain the quality without breaking the bank.
Most of the images have never been named
but I can tell you the location and circumstances surrounding
each one. Ordering is simple, just make a note of the number
below the image you are interested in. I don't have prints in
stock, the print you order will be created for you, by me.
Pricing: I'm basically offering prints in two sizes, 16"
and 12". The images are in three different shapes, in 16"
you get 16x16", 16x20" and a few are 16x24". In
12", they yield 12x12", 12x15" and 12x18".
To keep it simple:
16" prints - $350
12" prints - $280
If you have a special size you need, let me know, I can easily
create the perfect size for you. Smaller prints can also be done,
let me know what you need. I don't offer framing but there are
a couple of the best framing shops around in my area and can
make the referral or maybe even go with you to choose your frame.
I don't have an online shopping cart
set up yet, so make a note of the number below the photo and
email me and we'll take it from there. Payment can
be cash, check or PayPal. If you are local and would like to
take a look at these and my other prints, just let me know, I'm
certain that we can find a time that works for both of us. I'm
usually available, by appointment, from 12-4 most every day,
